Did You Know?

Cal's original vehicle in the movie was supposed to have been a Chevy Blazer, but after blowing the engine on the way to the set due to lack of oil in the engine, the directors improvised and persuaded a crewmember to let them use his 1981 Chevy Caprice station wagon. They ended up having to replace the transmission after killing it in the chase scenes.See more »

Wingate Jones:He's always cool with me, easy goin'. Always shot a good clean weld, you know, no rough seams. Sometimes certain folks in management would ride his ass pretty hard, and Hampton would always say, "he does this or says that one more time, I'm walkin' outa here".
Wingate Jones:Well he said that kinda shit every day, ya know. It's like getting real mad at someone and saying, some day I'm gonna kill that some of a bitch. Everybody says that shit, ya don't go and kill the person

Less than impressive indie film!, 15 August 2002
Author: guil fisher from New York City, NY

I viewed this late one night on Sundance Channel and was at first intrigued at the photography. Impressive colors and angles. It held your interest and set the mood of the long long roads in the mid-west that lead to nowhere. But eventually, something has to happen. To this viewer, it didn't. Drew Pillsbury, playing the drifter, out to find something else in his life other than a job and family responsibility, seemed to draw your attention, but then really didn't take you anywhere. Close up after close up of his rugged face with almost the same look on it. "What's happening?" seemed to be the look he had.

Unfortunately he runs into this plain Jane who seems to only have one expression on her face. Hard to describe just what she was trying to convey. Wendy Malick, as Jane, was rather predictable in her performance. A bit over acted at times, this viewer was so glad to see her hit the dirt after shooting an innocent victim attempting to help her fix her car. Only good part of the movie to me. Then it's all down hill from there.

Writers /Directors, David Elton and Thomas Johnston [I] made a good attempt to tell the story, but it could have used some drastic cutting and change of leading lady. I love evil leading ladies, Nicole Kidman in MALICE, but this one didn't have the oomph to me. Sorry.
